Sailing opportunities from Peel harbour

Due to essential maintenance of the Douglas flapgate the inner harbour will be closed to all vessel traffic between Tuesday 05th October until 28th October 2020. 

To be able to continue sailing we have decided to bring Pride of Mann III over to Peel. This gives you an opportunity to sail in a different area. So fingers crossed the Autumn weather will be kind and we will be able to show you the beautiful Western coastline of our island. Look for available dates on the sailing programme.
